selective sync has reciently changed so that if i want to change which sub floders i want i have to re-check all the ones i want rather than check or uncheck the changes.  verry tedious when I have more than 30 to sync

Hi Lusil,

I've worked out that if i click the name of the folder, not the sign beside it, it will open with those already checked done.

 

confusing, but at least i got it to work.

Hi there @sarahchalk, thanks for reaching out to us. 

Could you let me know if this happens with all subfolders throughout your account?

Are you having this issue with all computers, or a specific one by any chance? 

Give me a nudge whenever you have the chance to check this out, cheers!

Thanks for the tip!  I have struggled with this for the past two days.  When I clicked on the name of the folder, it solved the issue. Weird problem and great trouble-shooting!
